Default Casein-free Prebiotics?

Help! A family member took antibiotics and simply cannot get her gut back functioning right! We know PREbiotics are supposed to be as important as (maybe MORE IMPORTANT than) PRObiotics.

Can anybody please point us in the right direction? What brands? Links? That you KNOW are GOOD, please.

It must be without gluten, soy and cow dairy.

I don't know much about prebiotics but you can check at www.iherb.com and/or post on the vitamin/mineral section here and maybe Mrs. Doubtfyre will answer your request. She is quite knowledgeable. Good Luck.

I took powerful antiobiotics for about 4 1/2 months which made me weaker and also made my digestive system worse, so I decided on my own to stop them. While I was on the antibiotics, I was also taking (about 100 billion per day ) probiotics which did not seem to cancel out the antibiotic effects. Also---since taking those antibiotics, my left toe nail has become infected with a fungus.

Boy I'm not finding anything -- plenty on PRObiotics which do not contain soy, gluten or dairy -- http://www.jigsawhealth.com/supplements/probiotics but nothing on PREbiotics. Maybe a decent naturopath could advise...sorry!

Got it!!! There were two types the doctor we consulted with recommended.

One is a powder Arabinogalactan by "Vital Nutrients".
The other is Arabinogalactin capsules by "Pure encapsulations".

Before, I wasn't even sure what I was looking for. I was looking for "prebiotics" not "arabinogalactan."

I make that mistake all the time! Good for you for figuring out what you need - and maybe help someone else, too!

Here is another oddity... I had to get Saccharomyces Boulardi which was described to me as a probiotic that's also like a prebiotic (??!!??). Well, that's confusing to me!

WebMD describes it is a YEAST yet one thing it does is improve intestinal health to favor the good bacteria! It helps them to crowd out the bad bacteria. Well, that's what prebiotics do. It also is used to decrease the bad yeast - candida albicans.

This may help in the future. Hypoallergenic supplements
